Error Running Django In Workspaces
I'm trying to follow along with the 'Django Basics' course but keep getting this error when I try to start the server:
treehouse:~/workspace/learning_site$ python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000 RuntimeError: __class__ not set defining 'AbstractBaseUser' as <class 'django.contrib.auth.base_user.Abstra ctBaseUser'>. Was __classcell__ propagated to type.__new__?
Anyone familiar with this error or how to get around it?

The issue is with workspaces. Current workspaces seem to be using Django 1.9.9 with Python 3.9. This combination does not work with this course material.
As written, this course refers to Django 1.8 with Python 3.8. This question has been flagged as feedback to developers.
Developers: error can be recreated by:
- launching a new workspace from the video
- cd learning_site
$ python manage.py runserver
